The origins of the Huttant name lie with England's ancient Anglo-Saxon culture. It comes from when the family lived in the regions of Hutton. There are no fewer than twenty-nine parishes or townships in England named Hutton.

Huttant Early Origins



The surname Huttant was first found in Lancashire at Hutton, a township, in the parish of Penwortham, union of Preston, hundred of Leyland. An early charter or "inspeximus," in the 7th and 8th year of King Richard II.'s reign, mentions various charters of the abbey of St. Mary, Cockersand. One of those charters lists Helias, son of Roger de Hoton, as holding a grant from a "distant period" to a house and three carucates of land in "Hottun," in "Leylondeschire." [1]CITATION[CLOSE]
Lewis, Samuel, A Topographical Dictionary of England. Institute of Historical Research, 1848, Print.
Essentially, it was a grant for the whole town of Hottun. Priest-Hutton is another township in Lancashire. "The manor is mentioned in the Domesday Survey, and belonged to the Saxon Gilmichel. Adam de Hoton was one of the witnesses to Walter de Lyndesay's charter of liberties to Warton." [1]CITATION[CLOSE]
Lewis, Samuel, A Topographical Dictionary of England. Institute of Historical Research, 1848, Print.

The Great Migration



To escape oppression and starvation at that time, many English families left for the "open frontiers" of the New World with all its perceived opportunities. In droves people migrated to the many British colonies, those in North America in particular, paying high rates for passages in cramped, unsafe ships. Although many of the settlers did not make the long passage alive, those who did see the shores of North America perceived great opportunities before them. Many of the families that came from England went on to make essential contributions to the emerging nations of Canada and the United States. Research into various historical records revealed some of first members of the Huttant family emigrate to North America:
